The PlayStation 5's DualSense controller was discovered in the wild on Instagram. The picture was uploaded to the photo sharing platform by rapper Travis Scott.
The Instagram photo doesn't show the PlayStation 5 itself, but it can be assumed that Scott also has the console, according to the caption.
Scott is no stranger to gaming circles. Its Fortnite virtual astronomical concert draws 27.7 million players across five events in April. The first show had over 12.3 million viewers when the rapper released his song The Scotts with Kid Cudi.
The PlayStation 5 won't be launched until November 12th, so it remains unclear how Scott got his hands on the DualSense controller and presumably also the console.
Sony may have started shipping the PlayStation 5 to celebrities and social media influencers early on for marketing purposes. Digital Trends has requested confirmation that Scott purchased the console this way and we will update this article as soon as we get feedback.
Pre-order PlayStation 5 Fiasco
Luckily for Scott, it looks like he doesn't have to suffer from the confusion caused by the console pre-order process. Pre-orders were supposed to start the day after Sony's last PlayStation 5 livestream, but several retailers were taking pre-orders after just a few hours.
Sony has since apologized for the sudden launch of PlayStation 5 pre-orders, promising that players will get more ways to secure a console before and after the release of 12.
